Hello, is there a 'Force Dark Theme on pages' feature in any Firefox browser, whether Developer edition or Nightly or ... i'm using Opera just because i can force dark theme on any page while Firefox i trust it and consider it better as browser but i don't use it just for the lack of this feature

Here's how your site looks when i use this feature on Opera, it's attached

And here's how your site looks like on Firefox browser even if i have enabled and selected Dark Theme in your settings, image is attached.

Please add this feature and do not depend on Add-ons or Extension as these community or individual developers' Extensions/Add-ons require full access of browser data, and this is not a secure practice

Hi,

I've been encountering a strange issue where colors (especially whites) in the video player are super washed out. This only happens when HDR is turned on in windows, and only happens in my Firefox Developer Edition installation (normal firefox works fine). It also doesn't show up in any windows screenshots - the colors revert to normal when I'm in the screenshot GUI. I've attached photos below of a youtube video, the left is firefox DE and right is normal firefox, both in and out of the screenshot GUI so you can see the difference.

I'm on Windows 11, and I'm not sure what caused the issue. I've tried both refreshing and reinstalling firefox DE to no avail. Pretty stumped on this one, and would appreciate any help!

Every time I go to Fox News, the video at the top of the page drops to the lower right-hand corner. It's an annoyance I've been searching for a way to eliminate. I have pop-ups blocked in preferences and I have a couple of different pop-up blockers, but nothing seems to work. I'm currently using Firefox 114b.09 on a Mac Desktop.

I just updated to the latest version of FIREFOX 114.0 on Ubuntu 22.04. However, whenever a website looks for the version it is reported as 86. I am not using the SNAP version and it does not show up in SNAP LIST. Several websites have rejected access because of an outdated browser. Is this a bug or a setting that needs fixing? Thanks in advance.

Is there a way to have a long URL be displayed in multiple lines, or even better, one line per query parameter?

When I reopen the browser, it's just an empty new window. I am able to reopen them in "History" > "Recently closed windows", but it's extremely annoying to do this every time. Is there a way to fix it? It was fine like two weeks ago or so and my settings seem okay. I can't find the solution in similar posts here.

I have one Firefox profile with work and personal stuff, and am creating another profile just for work. I have exported the passwords from the first profile and deleted all my personal ones, so the Excel file just have personal passwords. I am looking for a way to import this file into my new Firefox profile. I see how to do that from another browser, but not from a file or another Firefox profile. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi!

So I'm currently using Google Authentication for my Firefox 2fa codes. However, that app is stuck offline and there is no way to get it to connect back online. I'm thinking of using another app to generate the Firefox codes. However, if I do so, by scanning the Firefox generated QR code to set up the code in the app, will this result in;

1. Having to generate a new backup code for Firefox (recovery key) 2. Voiding the generated keys on the other app I am using.

Thank you!

Flatpak Firefox not displaying some pdfs correctly

Hello,

Am using Mozilla Firefox installed via flatpak on openSUSE. Certain pdfs display correctly but other pdfs displayed with Firefox (either locally or online) are displayed badly: spaces are replaced with a lower half block character, fonts not sharp. I installed Firefox from the openSUSE repos (not from flathub) and opened the same pdf and it displayed correctly. I downloaded the pdf and opened it using Okular and no problems. I also opened the “troublesome” pdfs on Firefox in Windows and it displays correctly. I conclude that the flatpak version of Firefox is causing some pdfs to display incorrectly but I don’t know why.

I installed flatseal to tweak the flatpak Firefox’s settings but nothing seemed to fix the pdf display issue. Please see screenshot below of how Firefox (from openSUSE repos, on the left hand side) and Firefox (from flathub, on the right hand side) display the same pdf from the internet. The online pdf in the screenshot and used as an example of the issue can be found at:

https://www.jrf.org.uk/sites/default/files/jrf/files-research/international_cities_rotterdam.pdf

Not sure why some pdfs display correctly in Firefox from flathub and others display incorrectly. I’d prefer to use flatpak’s sandboxed Firefox if possible. Is there anyone else with the same problem or someone who who found a solution to this issue?

Thanks
